problem with blob field in mysqldump

I'm trying to dump a bugzilla installation to a file, then restore it
to a different database name (so as to test my db backup system).

I use mysqldump to dump it to a file:
# mysqldump -u root -p<passwd> (misc. options) bugs > bugs.sql

Then try to restore it to an empty DB, "foobar" with this command
# mysql -u root -p<passwd> foobar < bugs.sql

It fails, with this not-too-helpful error:
ERROR at line 163:

The failure is in the first table from bugzilla, "attachment s", which
has a blob field called "the_data" of which I have no doubt is the
cause of the failure. I'm hypothesizing that it's failing because of
newline characters in the the_data field of some records, but I have
not been able to confirm that.

I have tried the following mysqldump options in varying combinations,
and none helped the issue:
--set-variable 'net_buffer_len gth = 1048576'

If I skip the attachments table in the mysqldump the database restores

Anyone have any ideas how to solve this issue? If not, how to debug it
further? I'm seriously stuck.

My mysql server is 3.23.58

I'm needed to insert large BLOBs into a database. With the 1MB packet limit, sending larger amounts of data would be difficult, so I had a neat idea. I would do an initial insert of an empty record and get the auto_insert ID from the response, and then loop through, appending data to the record. My table is simple. One unsigned int auto_increment field (DataID), and one long blob field (BinaryData). When I loop through the data to...

Hi everyone! I am trying to write a program that will search a 12x12 for a thing called a "blob". A blob in the grid is made up of asterisks. A blob contains at least one asterisk. If an asterisk is in a blob, an asterisk that is contiguous to it is in the same blob. If a blob has more than two asterisks, then each asterisk in the blob is contiguous to at least one other asterisk in the blob. For example this 12x12 grid has 6 blobs. ...

hello, I finally got some code to push a pickled list into a database table. but now the problem is technically complex although possible to solve. the problem is that I can nicely pickle and store lists in a blob field with the help of dumps() for picklling into a string and then passing the string to the blob. I am also able to get back the string safely and do a loads() to unpickle the object. but this only works when list contains...

The Image can either be Linked or Embedded. Store the Path to the Image in a Text Field and use an Image Control...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
